    GDP!!! "Unexpectedly" it turned, step by step, lower and lower.....Have you ever noticed how much of the media employs the word "unexpectedly" in regards to the economy? When there is a Republican in the White House the word is used when the economy improves beyond projections as happened soon after the COVID lockdown in June 2020 when the Financial Times reported that "Unemployment rate in US falls unexpectedly to 13.3%." However, now that we have a Democrat administration, the term is used to describe what happens when economic conditions get worse, much worse such as when it was reported on...

    A great woman died suddenly just after Easter Sunday. Vicki Thorn was the founder of Project Rachel, a post-abortion healing ministry. "She was a voice for us when we were not able to speak yet," said Theresa Bonapartis, who had an abortion and now works with women who have done the same. "She heard us when others did not want to listen and definitely opened the door of healing in the Church." Project Rachel and other ministries like Bonapartis's Lumina are internationally active now, but that's because Thorn started the essential work. Thorn's compassion for women who have had abortions...

    When did so many young and healthy middle-aged people, described as fit and sporty, drop dead before 2020?

Questions are swirling about whether these elected officials were overwhelmed by job stress, or could there be another reason for so many “fit and healthy” politicians dying? On December 12, 2020, 41-year-old CSU Mayor Dirk Rosenbauer collapsed during a municipal council meeting and later died in a hospital in Coburg. The headline read, “At only 41 years old – mayor from Bavaria...
